After upgrading to Ubuntu 11.10 I downloaded XAMPP Linux 1.7.7 from SourceForge and I get the following error when attempting to extract it to /opt/ :
tar: Skipping to next header
gzip: stdin: invalid compressed data--format violated
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
I've tried both the terminal code:
tar xvfz xampp-linux-1.7.7.tar.gz -C /opt
and the Archive Manager with the same error both times.
Can anyone please help!
